Unique and exclusive access create a journey unlike any other. It's not just about the places you visit it's how you experience them. With Tauck you'll see the world differently thanks to our exclusive access in destinations the world over. Authentic experiences that provide special access to hidden gems and must-see sights – at times of day when the crowds have gone. That go behind the scenes to take you into places not accessible to the public. That show you the world differently than you could see it on your own and astonish you along the way

The best travels bring the right kind of connections, with locals who share their daily lives along with cultural insights, secrets of nature, stories of the past that define the present, and special skills – and a journey becomes both enriching and everlasting.


Celebrating 20 incredible years on the world’s rivers, our family-owned and operated company has remained focused on what we do best: providing our guests with innovative and unforgettable travel experiences. Our visionary leaders were the pioneers of modern luxury river cruising and have received numerous prestigious awards and accolades.

Our intimate, contemporary ships offer the luxury of personal space yet accommodate an average of approximately 156 guests, less than on many traditional river cruise ships. Spacious and uncrowded, our award-winning fleet offers elegantly-appointed staterooms and suites with such welcoming amenities as our signature view-enhancing twin balconies.

A leader in the industry, we continuously innovate to enhance the guest experience. In addition to our twin-balcony staterooms, we were the first river cruise line to offer a fleet of complimentary bikes, a fleetwide wellness program and the Chef’s Table specialty restaurant – all of which are included in the cruise fare. Innovating with the environment in mind is also extremely important to us. In fact, 20 of our ships in Europe have earned the prestigious Green Award certification for their industry-leading safety, quality and environmental performance – including our most innovative ship to date, the AmaMagna.

Your ship is a means of luxury transportation from destination to destination. The slower pace of river cruising means you have more free time in port and can step right off into the heart of the city and explore. When you’re ready to rejoin the ship, take a dip in the sun-deck pool or whirlpool, participate in one of our wellness activities, relax with a soothing massage or simply watch the scenery go by with a glass of wine in hand – the choice is yours.


Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is modeled after our sister company, the five-star Red Carnation Hotel Collection. Their collection of boutique hotels is known for their destination-inspired interior décor, gracious service and carefully selected amenities—all of which provide an intimate, elegant and relaxed experience. Likewise, our boutique river cruise ships are stylish floating hotels with inviting spaces, exquisite antiques, custom fabrics and original works of art.

Each ship is inspired by the very rivers upon which they cruise. With distinctive themes, color palettes, custom-made fabrics, personally selected original artwork, sumptuous furnishings and antiques, each element, down to the smallest detail, has been thoughtfully considered and flawlessly rendered.

Our ships seamlessly blend old-world elegance with the latest technological innovations and ultra-luxurious amenities. Under the guidance and vision of the Tollmans—a family synonymous with hospitality and innovation—we boldly invest in new ships that continue to elevate not only the Uniworld experience, but the luxury river cruise standard as a whole.

At Uniworld, we all live by the credo “No request is too large, no detail is too small.” Our goal is to give you the unique and unforgettable experiences you seek, with the personalized, industry-leading service you deserve.


Every detail on board a Viking ship is designed to enrich and enhance your travel experience, helping you fully immerse yourself in the rich cultures you are visiting. From our thoughtfully curated Library and the insights of our guest lecturers to regional cuisine and vintages from your destinations, Viking helps you connect to your destination in every possible way.

Regional cuisine, always available classics and the most al fresco dining on Europe’s waterways. We are dedicated to providing warm hospitality to our guests and ensuring everyone feels at home on board. We have the most loyal staff in the industry, and with over 90% returning year after year, you can expect the same quality service every time. In 2023, Viking was rated the Best River Line in Cruise Critic’s Cruisers’ Choice Awards for the second consecutive time.

For the third consecutive year, Viking is honored to have been named #1 for “Best Customer Service for Cruise Operators” by Newsweek Magazine. The award highlights brands that provide the best customer service in areas such as “quality of communications, professional competence, range of services, customer focus and accessibility.” Additionally, in 2022 and 2021, Viking earned the highest score within the overall transportation and travel industry category outranking dozens of other travel suppliers.


No other fleet of river cruise ships offers you a view of the world like Avalon Suite Ships,® featuring Avalon Panorama SuitesSM. Thirty percent larger than the industry standard, they’re actually river cruising’s only Open–Air Balcony® — with nothing between you and the view. While other river cruise cabins are designed with beds against a wall for a view of another wall, our Comfort Collection BedsSM actually face the view with the widest-opening, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in river cruising. Think of it as a view with a room!

Whether you like to paddle a kayak or paint a canvas, each day on an Avalon river cruise is an adventure of the mind, heart, or heart rate if you prefer. So, go ahead, pick up a paintbrush, a paddle, or the perfect vintage. The possibilities are as wide open as the views.

Avalon shares the flavors of the world with the freshest local ingredients prepared by our talented chefs and served in your choice of venues on board. Our Avalon FlexDining® approach to onboard dining experiences has tossed out the idea of restrictive seating times in limited settings. We’ve brought back the question, “Where should we eat?” to the cruise experience. Choose from options like a breezy al fresco lunch at the Sky Grill, an elegant four-course dinner in the glass-walled Panorama Dining Room, or a more casual culinary setting in the Panorama Bistro. Whichever table setting you choose, you’ll savor local flavors as well as the familiar favorites you love. On an Avalon cruise, dining is part of the journey.
